Eagles LB Myke Tavarres Reportedly Changes Mind, Will Stand for National Anthem

[CSNPhily] With realistic shot at 53-man roster, undrafted Myke Tavarres feels he fits Eagles' scheme well

Several hours after telling ESPN that he would join Colin Kaepernick in not standing for the national anthem, Eagles rookie linebacker Myke Tavarres has apparently changed his mind. 

Tavarres' agent told FOX29's Chris O'Connell Monday afternoon that the linebacker will stand for the national anthem Thursday in the Eagles' preseason finale against the Jets.

All right then. 

For what it's worth, Crossing Broad found this picture from Tavarres a few weeks ago, when he certainly seemed to be pro-America.

Happy Independence Day!! ����
